    I'm guilty of making baby quilts too big....just get kind of carried away. Regardless of size all baby quilts are appreciated and loved.

    My question is, why does the original post have a "thumbs down" tag for such a beautiful quilt?

    I love prairie points in a baby quilt - gives them something to grab and just adds additional cuteness! Love yours!

    I made this quilt for my second grandson just because I wanted to try prairie points. I found it to be a great baby quilt...so fun to make. Yours looks great!

    That turned out great, Carol. I love adding Prairie Points, too. It is much easier to do than you originally think it is going to be.

    What a cute quilt! Carol, you've inspired me to try prairie points. What method did you use to make your HST/pinwheels?

    Love the prairie points, Carol. I will be starting a baby quilt, hopefully by the end of the year (just need to know if it will be a boy or girl). I just might try prairie points on it. Thanks for the idea.

    Very pretty. Prairie points will add such a wonderful tactile feel to the quilt.

A twin just doesn't travel well and it's a hassle to wash when a baby spits up on it.

    She thinks long term though. And yes a twin quilt will be used in later years, but it's not a baby quilt.
    I made a quilt for my eldest dd , about the size of yours. It had a ruffle and was sweet and babyish. She sort of abandoned it and my younger one took it over. She thought I had made it for her. I was never going to tell her the truth until my big mouth step dd told her the story. But I digress, lol, she slept with that little rag until she left home and actually called one time to find out where it was. I packed it away in a large zip-loc.

    So tell your friend that little ones love those blankets (quilts) they can drag around until they are rags. lol There is always time to make a big kid quilt later on, especially when they show interest in something like bugs or ballerinas.
